Excerpt from Hand-Book of Modern Steam Fire-Engines: Including the Running, Care and Management of Steam Fire-Engines and Fire-Pumps
With reference to this particular matter, the object has been to give such corrections in construction as might seem to be most essential to th... e class of men for whom its publication is designed, and to weed out such descriptions as can have at this time no special interest for the reader.
That portion of the book devoted to hydraulics, as well as the pages pertaining to the properties of fire, air, water, heat and steam, remain unaltered; they play the same important part for the steam engine to-day as they did yesterday and will to-morrow.
